READ AND REVIEW
LOVE IN THE MORNING (SALT BOX #2) BY MEG BENJAMIN
"Breakfast with benefits "
"The Salt Box Trilogy," Book 2
The reality show "Lovely Ladies of L.A." should have launched Lizzy Apodaca's catering company into solvency. Instead, when her carefully prepared appetizers mysteriously gave the cast on-camera food poisoning, she lost everything.
To make matters worse, her car breaks down in Salt Box, Colorado, a town not much bigger than a salt shaker. But maybe her luck is changing the handsome owner of Praeger House, the town s premier hotel, needs a kitchen assistant.
Clark Denham realizes his diamond in the rough is a polished gem when Lizzy steps up to save the hotel's breakfast buffet after his temperamental head chef quits. It isn t long before she s winning his heart as smoothly and efficiently as she runs his kitchen.
Their relationship goes from simmer to rolling boil with the speed of a short order cook. But when a bevy of not-so-lovely ladies shows up in Salt Box, Lizzy's past disaster threatens to flatten her happily ever after faster than a falling souffle.
Warning: Contains salty dialogue, several servings of high-carb cooking, and a big platter of screaming-hot bedroom delights.""
REVIEW: LOVE IN THE MORNING (SALT BOX #2) BY MEG BENJAMIN
Love in the Morning by Meg Benjamin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Meg Benjamin is back with a hearty love story full of tasty characters and mouthwatering storylines. Having read Finding Mr. Right a while back I knew what was in store. Love in The Morning has the romance that is expected from Ms. Benjamin's stories but also supplies that needed element of emotional connection that appeals to the heart. There is a bright side to every dark cloud thrown out in life. I received an ARC of Love in The Morning in exchange for an honest review.

FINDING MR. RIGHT NOW (SALT BOX #1) BY MEG BENJAMIN
Reality can be hotter than fiction.
The Salt Box Trilogy, Book 1
Monica McKellar, associate producer of Finding Mr. Right, is desperate. One of the show’s bachelors has bailed one week before shooting starts. She not only needs a replacement ASAP, he has to get the temperamental bachelorette’s stamp of approval.
Fortunately there’s a hot guy right under her nose who’s a perfect fit. Unfortunately, he pushes all her hot buttons. Until the show’s over, her hands—and every other part of her body—are tied.
When Paul Dewitt signed on to write for the reality show, “Bachelor #10” wasn’t supposed to be in his job description. He fully expects to be cut early on, which will free him to focus on the real object of his attraction. Monica.
Instead, he’s a finalist, and they’re all packed in an SUV climbing the Continental Divide, headed for Salt Box, Colorado. Where stampeding horses, vindictive tabloid editors, and one capricious bachelorette’s waffling over suitors may conspire to end Paul and Monica’s romance before it even starts.
Warning: Contains hot sex on the sly, cold nights, creaking wicker couches, and a gypsy wagon that gives a whole new appreciation for the pioneers.
REVIEW: FINDING MR. RIGHT NOW (SALT BOX #1) BY MEG BENJAMIN
Finding Mr. Right Now by Meg Benjamin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A fun look at the mess that is reality TV. Finding Mr. Right Now is funny, sexy and touching at the same time. Meg Benjamin did a fascinating job. Setting a story, a romance no less in the glitz, glamor and shallowness of reality TV was genius. The contrast between working in an environment centered around make believe and managing to find a solid, stable relationship was a very different take on your standard romance. After reading Finding Mr. Right Now, I will surely read the rest of this fun series.
Disclosure: Received an ARC of Finding Mr. Right Now for an honest review.
